Newsdome: Watch out for deadly, delicious cantaloupes

>> Florida wants to move its Republican National Committee primary from February to January 31, forcing the Early Four (Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada) to move their votes even earlier in the month. Florida is a more important swing state than, say, South Carolina, but can Florida not screw up an election just once? (CNN)

>> Take it away Michele Bachmann: "There's reports that have come out that Cuba has been working with another terrorist organization called Hezbollah. And Hezbollah is potentially looking at wanting to be part of missile sites in Iran and, of course, when you're 90 miles offshore from Florida, you don't want to entertain the prospect of hosting bases or sites where Hezbollah could have training camps or perhaps have missile sites or weapons sites in Cuba." Spreading dubious rumors? This woman's got a lot of choot-spa. (The Hill)

>> After the White House announced it would secure and destroy Libya's huge stockpile of surface-to-air missiles, a reported 20,000 have gone missing. Maybe they're in Cuba. (ABC News)

>> The CDC reports that the Listeria illness outbreak linked to cantaloupes may be one of the deadliest in recent history, sickening 72 across 18 states and killing 13. Listeria isn't Vh1's latest countdown show? (CBS News)

>> And finally: Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray, is in court charged with the manslaughter of MJ by inadvertently overdosing the singer. Don't stop until you get enough Propofol. (LA Times)
